Our neighbor has some kind of vine growing up onto a tree we share. Photo 1: where the vine is rooted Photo 2: the vine in the tree Photo 3: a close up of the leaves What is the name of the vine? Is it bad for the tree? Thanks! Ruth

We think this may be sweet autumn virginsbower (Clematis terniflora), an invasive vine. If so we recommend removal.
Take a look at the photos on the attached link
